TORONTO, Canada, April 16, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Using modeling predictions that have historically proven to be unreliable, the government of Ontario added two more weeks to the already month-long stay-at-home order while burdening citizens with additional restrictive measures that include a 10-person limit at church services, cracking down on travel, closing playgrounds, and stepping up enforcement of rules already in place.

“We have implemented the strictest measures in all of North America,” Premier Doug Ford said this afternoon during a press conference at Queen’s Park where he announced the measures that come into effect on Saturday, April 17 just after midnight.

Places of worship will be capped at a maximum of 10 people indoors, beginning Monday.

Checkpoints will be set up at all of the province’s interprovincial borders with Quebec and Manitoba to clamp down on people trying to enter the province. It is unclear if the new measures will be able to withstand a challenge based on the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms that grants “mobility rights” to citizens.

Big box retail stores will be reduced to operating at 25 percent capacity and playgrounds, basketball courts, golf courts, soccer fields will be closed down.

Ford made it clear that those who do not follow the rules will experience the iron fist of the law.

“For our part, we’re taking decisive action on the ground to dramatically step up enforcement. We have made the difficult but necessary decision to give police and bylaw officers special authorities to enforce public health measures for the duration of the stay-at-home order,” he said.

“Understand the restrictions will be strongly, strongly enforced,” he added.

Solicitor General Sylvia Jones said during the press conference that police have been given the power to stop a vehicle or person and inquire if an individual has a legitimate reason to leave home. “Police will have the authority to require any individual who is not in a place of residence to first provide their purpose for not being at home and provide their address,” she said.

Ontario Member of Parliament (MP) Derek Sloan criticized on Twitter the new powers given to police. Doug Ford, he said, has “just escalated government overreach to a new level, including endowing the police with powers that are well beyond acceptable in a free Canada.”

“Ontario is not a police state!”

The new measures, which are in effect until May 20, come a little over a week after Ford issued a province-wide stay-at-home order that closed non-essential retail stores, continued to restrict church attendance, but allowed schools and garden centers to stay open.

The government claims the new measures are necessary to flatten what they say is the third wave of COVID-19 so that hospitals will not be overrun by new admissions to ICUs (Intensive Care Units). On Thursday, Cabinet was presented with modeling data that painted a doomsday scenario of new infections increasing to as many as 20,000 cases a day by May. Dr. Adalsteinn Brown, the province’s science advisory co-chair, said today that without public health measures, the case count could be 30,000 per day. Health officials reported 4,800 new cases today along with 25 deaths. So far, there have been 7,664 deaths in Ontario attributed to the virus

Commentator Brian Lilley pointed out in an article in the Toronto Sun yesterday that the models have been unreliable in the past. “These types of predictions have been made in the past but failed to materialize,” he said.

“On Feb. 11, as the province was looking to end the last stay-at-home order while keeping Toronto and Peel in lockdown, the Ontario Science Table predicted we would see 18,000 cases a day by the end of March. Instead, Ontario finished the month reporting 2,333 new cases on March 31,” he added.

Yesterday, a group of Canadian politicians held a national news conference on Parliament Hill in Ottawa calling for the end of lockdowns. The group of over 60 elected members from the federal, provincial and municipal levels of government calls itself the “End the Lockdowns Caucus.”

“The use of the lockdown, as experienced in this country, have been disproportionate to protecting us from COVID in relation to the harms that they’ve caused,” said the host of the event Federal MP Derek Sloan (Hastings-Lennox & Addington) during the conference.

“I believe with the implementation of the lockdowns as we have seen them, we are, in fact, worse off than if we had done more targeted measures to protect the most vulnerable,” he said.

Sloan accused the Trudeau government of a “series of failures” in its handling of the pandemic, including that 1) it did not respond to the threat of the virus right from the beginning by restricting travel from international destinations, 2) it failed to protect the elderly when data showed that the virus targeted them more than anyone else, 3) it failed to proactively make use of promising drugs and vitamin treatments to both prevent and treat the virus, 4) it failed to provide “useful information” that the “virus is far more dangerous for some people than others” which would have done much to “quell the fear that so rampant in our society,” and 5) it failed by providing financial incentives for provinces to “engage in endless blanket lockdowns that quarantine the healthy and the sick alike.”

Sloan said that official government statistics reveal that suicide has currently claimed more lives of young people than the coronavirus.

“We know through Statistics Canada that 95 percent—approximately—of fatalities in Canada due to COVID have been the elderly. Children 19 and under have—rounded to the nearest tenth of a percent, and I got this data this morning— zero point zero (0.0) percent chance of dying from COVID. That data is accurate,” he said.

“As of April 9th, from Government of Canada sources, there have been 7 total deaths of those aged 0-19. We have lost far more kids to suicide than this. Every death is a tragedy. But remember, if we’re creating more deaths than those we’re preventing, that is a greater tragedy.”

He pointed out that McMaster Children’s hospital reported last month that children in hospital for treatment after a suicide attempt tripled over a four-month period.

“Lockdowns have costs. We’re seeing it in a rapid rise of eating disorders, mental health conditions, addictions, bankruptcies, and more.”

Also present at the press conference was independent MPP Randy Hillier (Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston) who said that the province and the country is “facing the greatest threat that it has ever faced in its existence and in its history.”

“This threat is not external. This threat is not COVID. This threat is a struggle and a conflict for the conscience of Canadians. We have seen all our governments enact measures that are un-Canadian, measures that are unconstitutional, measures that are political under the pretext of a health crisis. And I say that with all sincerity. We are engaged in tremendous censorship in our society, through the mainstream media, through social media, and self-censorship of ourselves in our desire for conformity,” he said.

“[Governments] have attacked—and no one will uphold—our freedom of conscience, our freedom of worship, our freedom of mobility, our freedom of speech, our freedom to assemble and to gather peacefully. All of those are under attack in Ontario and many other provinces. Our provinces will not uphold the rule of law. Our federal government will not uphold the rule of law. And we are becoming a lawless society without freedom,” he added.

Hillier said that public health measures need to be based on real evidence and data, not on “narratives” created by so-called experts.

“We need to start speaking honestly. We need to stop acting irrationally. We need to be guided by science and data and evidence, not experts who twist and manipulate that data and evidence,” he said.

“But most importantly,” he said, government leaders have lost their “moral compass” which must be regained if “we are ever to regain Canada.”

Also attending the press conference was Maxime Bernier, leader of the People’s Party of Canada. He said that lockdowns have proved to be a failed experiment with devastating consequences.

“In the last 13 months of restrictions, the Prime Minister and provincial premiers have violated our rights and freedoms. We have been living with lockdowns and restrictions that have dictated every aspect of our lives for over a year. It was supposed to be a two-week measure to ‘flatten the curve.’ Never in the history of mankind has a country locked up its entire population to stop the virus. It is a failed experiment and Canadians are paying the price.”

Bernier said that the cure is proving to be worse than the disease.

“Because of these lockdowns and drastic measures, Canadians are dying from canceled surgeries and operations, drug overdose and suicide. Rates of depression have risen dramatically across the country, and our children now suffer immensely. The cure is worse than the disease,” he said.

Bernier said that the Peoples Party of Canada is the only national political party “fighting openly to end these authoritarian lockdowns and fighting against the imposition of vaccine passports.”

“Recently, we’ve read in the news that the establishment politicians want to impose a vaccine passport. They want to divide us in two categories of citizens: vaccinated ones and unvaccinated people. Vaccinated Canadians would have privileges over unvaccinated. Unvaccinated people won’t be able to travel, go to a hockey game, or to a rock concert. They will not be able to participate fully in civil society unless they obey the tyrannical dictates of the establishment,” he said.

“I don’t want a ‘show me your papers’ society. We will never accept it. It’s not the Canadian way,” he added.

Author's note at the end of each post: -"Your biggest problem is so small for such a big God"-Ella Cruz" The Bible is the blueprint of Faith. The New Testament has given us God’s kind of faith and the authority to perform miracles through faith and the name of Jesus. No matter what level of cancer you are; you can be healed by your faith and the word of God. Jesus did not care in what stage of death were the three people whom he raised from the dead. He just called life on them. Let see how He did it. "The first time he invaded the realm of death it was for the daughter of Jairus; an official in Jerusalem. She was “just” dead. The second time it was the son of a widow in Nain who was “one day” dead, and the third time it was Lazarus; brother of Mary and Martha in Bethany who was “very” dead after three days. HE raised them “all.” It doesn’t matter how big is your problem, and how hopeless you are because Jesus is the resurrection and the light."-Ella Cruz World's events are happening so fast. Putting Global Governance 2015, Agenda 2030, Agenda 2050, Antarctica, Mars, CERN, G5, The United Nations, The European Union, the Club of Rome, and the false prophets of the Vatican all together, we see that the satanic global government is imminent and it shall come to pass. The mark of the beast will be obligatory. You are either a Christian and believe this because this is what was predicted 2000 years ago in the Bible, or you are not a Christian but you read all these articles and connect the dots to notice that the satanic world government is their agenda and with President Trump, we had 4 years and this was God's mercy on us. Their Global Governance 2025 is terribly close. Their Green New Deal's 12 years matches the agenda 2030. The immigration and devouring of America and Europe all go according to the blueprint of one world satanic government. We have a short time to prepare ourselves. Why are we, born-again Christians happy and calm? Why do we joyfully dedicate ourselves to the nation, knowing that we will be chased and prosecuted for NOT taking the mark of the beast? Because we are dedicated to the Kingdom. "Your kingdom come, Your will be done." 1- We believe Jesus Christ is the son of the Living God. 2- We believe the Bible is the word of God. 3-We believe God had so much loved us that HE sent his only begotten son to die on the cross for our sins. Through his blood, all our sins are washed away and forgiven. 4- We believe the price of our salvation, health, prosperity, happiness, and eternal life is paid by the blood of Jesus. We have all these gifts in us when we are born again by GRACE. By his stripes, we are healed 2000 years ago. 5-We believe by accepting Jesus Christ as our savior, we open our hearts to the Holy Spirit. We are baptized by the Holy Spirit who will dwell in us and will reveal Himself through dreams, visions, speeches, videos, books to communicate with us, immediately after our Salvation. 6- We believe Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. We believe born-again believers receive the same DNA as Jesus Christ with the same miraculous abilities through faith. Just as the Apostles performed the same signs and wonders as our Lord Jesus did. They did it through "faith," and The Lord will accomplish the same miracles through us after we accept him as our savior. 7-We condemn the religion and many fake prophets of the Vatican (not all of our Catholic brothers and sisters) who deceived Christians for centuries and hid the true message of the Bible and the Good News from people to keep themselves in power. We welcome all denominations. 8- We believe that a born-again Christian never dies and the moment his life on earth is terminated, he is promoted to heaven. There is no death for us. We just transit to our new dimension which is filled with immerse, joy, love, peace, and glory of God. All people who have met Jesus in a visit, vision, dream, or have died for a short time, left their body and came back, know how does this experience feel. It is a divine relief and joy. Therefore, to answer the above question (why are we happy?), our answer is, we can happily die right now. In fact, we would love to die yesterday and go home but each one of us has a mission and purpose that the Holy Spirit has revealed to us after our born-again experience. For the sake of that mission, although we know our day of prosecution will come, we are joyful and relaxed in the spirit. Because we save people by preaching the Gospel and bringing them to Jesus. To be born again, you just need to say: Lord Jesus, I accept you as my personal savior, Come to my heart, Forgive my sins, Wash me away, Make me a new person, And live inside of me. In the Name of Jesus from Nazareth, Amen. And that's it. You are saved. He will reveal himself to you. Your life will dramatically change. Your marriage, your health (especially addiction), your finances, and all areas of your life will experience this extraordinary change. And never look back. In Jesus Almighty name. Amen.
